how to connect a hose to my outside tap?

Posted 14th May 2016
Sorry for the noob question but I'm really struggling what to do here...I've got an outside tap that doesn't have a screw end.…McA

This is basically how it is. Well my question is how the hell do I attach a hose to it? I bought a hozelock adapter which has a tightening fitting on it but that hasn't worked. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    I take it that the link is a photo of your tap, if so slide the hose over the stub on the tap, slide a hose clip over the hose and tighten the hose clip so that it secures the hose to the stub on the tap.

    What you got then? All brass outside taps have a screw end.. If you have a push hose fitting on your current tap then remove to reveal screw thread. You may not have this option as it's a old kitchen sink tap that was fitted.. How annoying.. in which case swap it. Get plumber or do yourself.
